Favourite ski pants

This bib is my favourite of my ski pants to wear. A little pricey but worth the incredible quality. Layered properly, they are impenetrable and yet breathable and light at the same time. Love the large pockets and velcro closures on the straps. They were a little tricky during bathroom breaks at first, but I figured out my technique and I’m in and out in minutes. I’m 5’6” and 125lbs so a size small was a perfect fit with and without much layering. I would suggest a size up if using it with multiple or “puffer” style, insulated mid layers.

Love these!

These bibs are super comfy and lightweight, and also stretchy but still totally waterproof! I’m 5’6” and 150 lbs and a medium fits perfect. Have worn these for many days both touring and riding inbounds. Really functional pockets, especially the beacon pocket. Also very quick and easy to use the side zip for bathroom breaks.

I’ve been looking for bibs that fit my curvy figure for a while now. Most brands don’t accommodate my hips well. ( 46” hips , 32 “‘waist , height 5 ‘ 10” )These are perfect!! I wish BD would come out with a drop seat in this style !

Great fit, waterproof and flexible

This is my second pair of these bibs. They are my favorite and go-to pants. The waterproof rating stands up to its name -- keeping me dry on those damp days. The four way stretch keeps the fit relaxed and not restricted. The material moves so great with you whether it's uphill or downhill. I can't recommend these bibs enough

Super comfy and functional!

Amazing bibs! Fit is great with a perfect amount of stretch. I’m 5’5, 145lbs and wear a medium. Shell design works great for lift laps at the resort and also backcountry touring. Love the extra roomy pockets, especially the beacon pocket.

Great material and color. They fit as well as bibs could. Love the zipper down the side. Wore these in crazy winds and they held up well

Great pair of bibs! Lots

Great pair of bibs! Lots of good pockets and the straps are easily adjustable. These are going to be a great piece for both resort skiing and backcountry adventures. I'm 5'6" and 130lbs--ordered my usual size small, but am exchanging for an XS, as it's just a little baggier of a fit than I was hoping for.
